WHEREAS, the City of Hermosa Beach is considering a proposal to slant drill from its City Yard up to 35 wells underneath the city’s homes, streets and businesses and into the Torrance Oil Field underneath Santa Monica Bay; and
WHEREAS, it is probable there will be negative effects on the health and safety of the citizens of Hermosa Beach and its neighboring communities due to this proposed drilling, and that this project is inconsistent with the city’s pledge to become carbon neutral,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Los Angeles County Democratic Party opposes the proposed Hermosa Beach Oil Drilling Project and any future oil drilling in Hermosa Beach; and strongly supports the City of Hermosa Beach’s pledge to become a “carbon neutral” city and to promote an alternative“carbon neutral” economy for the city; and
THERFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party send a copy of this resolution to the Hermosa Beach City Council and to Assemblymember Al Murastuchi and Senator Ted Lieu.
